Meet the all-new Renault Megane!
The Megane is back and it’s only available as an EV! The question is, should you consider it over electric competitors like the Kia e-Niro and Cupra Born? Let’s find out…
For starters, it’s a super stylish car. From the rear, it comes with a wide LED light strip, a mini roof spoiler and a gold strip around the diffuser (for top spec cars, that is). It also comes with a contrasting black roof, integrated door handles and 20” alloy wheels! The front end’s just as good, with thin headlights, swooping daytime running lights and even contours in the bonnet!
The quality continues on the inside, too. The dash comes covered in fabric and there are other soft touch materials throughout the cabin. There’s a big infotainment screen in the centre of the dash, as well as a big digital drivers display. The steering wheel is in a hexagonal shape, and all-in-all looks pretty smart.
In terms of performance, the Megane comes with a big 60kWh battery pack, along with a single electric motor that can deliver 217hp and 300Nm of torque. It has a claimed range of 280 miles, and a top speed of 99mph.
In terms of price, the Megane starts from around £36,000. But is it worth it? You’ll have to stick with Mat and see for yourself!
